Twelve Event Management had the pleasure of catering for KFC RGM Annual Conference 2015 at The Blackpool Winter Gardens on Wednesday 4th February 2015.

The initial concept for the evening dinner menu was devised late summer last year and was followed up by three tasting sessions at the restaurant. We were delighted to win the contract for the conference ahead of a number of catering specialists from the North West and London.

The Day started with coffee and biscuits for the 1120 arriving delegates from all over the UK.

A buffet lunch was served in the Spanish Room which included bowl foods and a huge display of glass and jar desserts, which included sticky toffee pudding, sago and fruit pudding, cheesecake, and KFC's very own panna cotta.

The evening reception commenced with a Champagne and canape reception in the Floral Hall

The Empress Ballroom looked stunning.  If you are thinking of hosting a conference in Blackpool take a look at these amazing facilities, Team Winter Gardens are truly fabulous to work with.
